Narrative ethics is an approach that is well known for ethical education and moral development.  In narrative ethics, by using a story, its components and characters, ethical knowledge and awareness can be achieved. This approach is very useful in medical ethics education and is helpful in dealing with ethical dilemmas. In fact, part of ethical development, in addition to moral judgment, is to reinforce the ethical sensitivity in which narrative ethics can play a significant role for this purpose.This approach has been widely used for teaching morality in Persian literature and history telling, such as Mathnavi. Narrative ethics can be applied by telling stories about patients' life and their experience of illness. It can also be used to criticize and analyze the clinical situation and explore ethical challenges that healthcare providers face in their daily practice. Thus, it can help to prevent ethical conflicts by establishing interaction between ethical principles and patients' values. This paper emphasizes the application of this method in medical ethics education and ethical decision-making.
